02/27/2020 - Music: Kembang Sunda Gamelan
Kembang Sunda is a San Diego-based ensemble that performs Sundanese gamelan degung music from West Java, Indonesia. Degung music developed in the royal Sundanese courts of West Java beginning in the fourteenth century. The ensemble consists primarily of tuned bronze idiophones; a large hanging gong (go’ong), large rack gongs (jengglong), medium rack gongs (bonang), a mid-range metallophone (panerus), and a high-range metallophone (peking). Other instruments include a set of tuned drums (kendang), a wooden xylophone (gambang), and a bamboo flute (suling). Degung music, like all gamelan styles, is based on a colotomic structure: music organized into cycles defined by periodic punctuation played by specific instruments. In ancient times, degung music was played in the royal courts to welcome guests, accompany dance, and aid in meditation. Today, degung music is typically heard at traditional Sundanese wedding ceremonies and other important events where an atmosphere of elegance and Sundanese cultural authenticity is desired.
